Cuprosklodowskite, Schoepite, Brochantite
Small Cabinet, 8.5 x 5.3 x 4.5 cm
Musonoi Mine, Kolwezi, Western area, Katanga Copper Crescent, Katanga (Shaba), Democratic Republic of Congo (Zaire)
STRIKING, EXTREMELY RICH combination piece from the famous Musonoi Mine of lustrous, green, acicular cuprosklodowskite crystals with the RARE, bright, lemon-yellow uranium oxide schoepite and nicely accented with dark green brochantite. Just for the C-sklo, this is a nice showy specimen, but the schoepite association is rare in both its richness and its beauty.
